Devin Booker says Suns must improve chemistry

NBA: LeVert stays hot as Nets beat Suns

Suns fans booed their own team Wednesday night, as the visiting Brooklyn Nets cruised to a 104-82 road win. The Nets regained a 14-point lead, 74-60, with Spencer Dinwiddie's 3 at the 2:18 mark.

The Suns are no strangers to new beginnings, with Kokoskov the team's fourth head coach since the start of the 2015-16 season.

Both teams struggled to hit shots in the first quarter, with field goal percentages of less than 40 both ways. Joe Harris added 11 while Jarrett Allen chipped in 10 as the Nets piled up 54 points in the paint. G Jared Dudley returned to Phoenix for the first time since being traded in the offseason.

It was the first win for the Suns since they blew out the Dallas Mavericks in their season opener.

Suns: F T.J. Warren returned after missing the team's last game with back spasms.

They may have a candidate to break that drought in guard Devin Booker, the fourth-year scorer who is averaging 25.7 points and 6.7 assists per game this season, having missed three games earlier with a sprained ankle. Chandler was in the final season of a four-year, $52 million free-agent deal he signed in July 2015 and has reportedly agreed to forfeit $2.1 million of the remaining $13.5 million in order to secure his release. G Jamal Crawford moved into 29th place career in games played (1,271).

You might think that your iron bladder is up to the task, but c'mon: Having to do a sitting pee-pee dance during a long film is going to ruin the experience for you.

The Suns, coming off a 102-100 win over Memphis on Sunday, had hoped that win was the start of a turnaround.

"It sucks, man", Booker told reporters, via ESPN.com.

"It wasn't a ideal game by any means, but we needed this one", Suns coach Igor Kokoskov said. We didn't protect home court, came in here and got blown out in front of our fans.

The Nets knew they needed to build off the blowout of Philly in this road-trip opener because red-hot Denver (9-1) and the defending two-time National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors are their next two opponents on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

"I'd be doing the same thing if I was up there", he said. "He's going to space the floor and he's an intelligent defender".
